[Openstack] Fwd: Making the Hong Kong Summit as inclusive as possible

David, while I think having an onsite group able to field complaints and address incidents is critical, we need to make sure that such a group has the ability to address any complaints. So I'd suggest we pass this directly to the foundation staff, and make sure that the event coordination team is coached appropriately. Having community members act as ombudsperson is both complicated from a legal standpoint, and potentially inappropriate.

Lauren, can you make sure the on-site events team is briefed on the proposed code-of-conduct, and is ready to respond to any complaints that might arise?

"Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has."

While I'll continue to participate in this effort, unfortunately, I won't be attending the summit myself so I can't help onsite. I will however like  nominate both Anne Gentle and George Reese be initial members of the committee. Anyone else interested? A group of three is probably plenty.
